    hello

    I'm trying to win a contest here but I can't figure out how they keep track of voters.

    First , I tried clearing cookies and changing IP/Proxy to vote again , strangely , it didn't work

    Then I tried changing the browser , surprisingly , this one worked. But this can only get me like 3 votes koz i have only 3 browsers.

    What I don't understand is how come changing browsers worked and clearing cookies , cache etc and changing IP didn't work ??

    Have you encountered this technique before ? If so , how to bypass it

    Thank you

    I think they would be tracking the entire IP range. So, no matter you have a dynamic IP, still the IP range remains same. The best option is getting proxy IPs. That's the best bet I suppose. Or you can even buy votes if you badly want to win the contest. Just a Suggestion.

    Cheers :)

    Tnx for the response. I tried using proxies from different countries, that didn't work out either. I wonder how they keep track :/

    You did something wrong - did you disable flash & java?

    Proxies have worked for me in the past, so I suggested you but it's strange that despite using proxies you're not able to vote. If you own a facebook page, then you can ask people to vote for you. :p ... I have seen people doing that but it's completely your choice.

    Cheers :)

    It's not cheating , It's a more ethical way to win something by working on it and counting on yourself rather than annoying people and begging them for votes where they will eventually be voting for u not koz u deserve it or koz they like concept of the contest etc , It'll be just koz they think u need help. So, why disturbing people to earn me smth wen I can earn it myself :p

    Tell me that you're kidding. Hahahaha

    Friend, this is not an ethical way. It's illegal and that's it.

    Cheers :)

    Online Voting is a trade-off between Kissing ass and " cheating "
